I was also thinking this same..why here is so little ppl example from Egypt? Im also from Finland but i would like to find ppl from muslim countrys...its seems to bee little bit hard
Yes it's the problem justly...! I'm learning arabic egyptian called too "language of Cairo" and on this site I'ven't any penpal from Egypt.
For Muslim country, I just found a few members, I want to meet more too
I have heard that the founder of this site is a French at the chat room before,
so there are lots of members from France
Besides, I think the number of members from a country has also reflected the culture and custom of the country to some extent
For Asian countries, such as China and Japan,
I think the teenagers there need to face a lot of stress from study,
lots of homework, and eventually they don't have much time to meet new penpals
Besides, for Japan and some Muslim country,
I think the number is affected by their culture too,
as I know most of them tend to be conservative and don't like to contact with foreigners much,
in order to avoid culture conflicts or difficulties in communicating in foreign languages
Not for everybody...
When someone want to know a new language and really to talk this language he know that's better to have a penpal. So much school do exchange or journeys of somes days in others countries...I don't know if it's only because it's the crisis...! -_-
Indeed there are many, many French people here (which is actually a problem for me as I don't really need to improve my French or to discover my own country culture, but no offense dear Frenchies !)!
About Egyptian and Greek people, I guess they're probably such in trouble right now - for different reasons - that they don't have time to look for penpals all over the world...?
Moreover, I don't know about Macedonians, but I believe Japanese, Greeks and Egyptians just don't write with the same letters as French, English or Italian people do... that makes communication even more complicated for them, doesn't it ?
I'm really not sure about all what I'm saying, but I hope it answers (a little) the question...
(and just tell me if I'm stupid in English and correct me, please!)
It's the problem. I don't need to speak french which is my own language and to discover my country me either,that I've passed my childhood to discover!
Yeah i know ppl in Egypt and Greek they have hard time right now...I know lots off ppl from Egypt and they speak and write english so letters shouldnt be a problem. Maybe they just dosent use this kind of forums . Hope some of them will find they way in here also
I'm agree with you!
I hope too.
Besides, although a lot of members on this site want to meet British members and improve their English,
I don't find much British members on this site
I think most members are Europeans instead
When they love us and gives us a little of their time, of course.
I find it sad that they're so much frenchies more than foreigner... :mellow Can matters Europeans or not penpals haven't so much time even in Holidays! Then we're as us. :mellow
